A perfect exemplar of art imitating nature, this tiny porcelain sea urchin vessel by Naoko Matsumoto will bring your spirit to the ocean shore. Matsumoto shapes this delicate treasure on a potter’s wheel before adding miniscule dots of slip to replicate the texture of a sea urchin’s shell. The inside of this vessel is glazed in a beautiful, glossy celadon.
